Runtime dependencies are KWindowSystem, liblxqt and lxqt-common.
Additional build dependencies are CMake and optionally Git to pull latest VCS checkouts. The localization files were outsourced to repository lxqt-l10n so the corresponding dependencies are needed, too. Please refer to this repository's
README.md for further information.
Code configuration is handled by CMake. CMake variable
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX has to be set to
/usr on most operating systems.
To build run
make, to install
make install which accepts variable
